When a couple first enters into an engagement everything is lollipops and roses. The excitement of starting a new life with someone you love is like a euphoric drug. They seem better than they really are, and the life you expect to live is picture perfect. Girls love jewelry, so the whole “ring thing”, really tops off the air of positive expectation.
While marriage is seldom the fairy tale most people envision when tying the knot, many marriages grow in strength over time. There are still couples out there who manage to find the right partner and blissfully maneuver the hurdles of life, to grow old together. That is not the case for about half of us though. When a marriage goes bad those bands , that were symbols of love and commitment, start to metamorphosize into shackles. Divorce looms.
